adding coordinates can be a tricky task, as there's no single
"de-facto" OpenGL text rendering library and such one is required to
not reinvent the wheel. I was playing a bit around with some of them
last spring, still had not enough time to find fast to implement and
easy solution (and I'm not an OpenGL coder). We will have to decide
which one to use to get text into NVIZ scene (FTGL?).

If getting some text to be displayed is not that hard task, still I
would strongly suggest to go for more. And by more I mean - unicode
and TTF (or similar) font support for any text rendering to allow
later on work on vector labels, user placed labels and signs.

Just my 0.02 and no code :(
